PUMP IDENTIFICATION
Congratulations! You are the owner of one of the finest pumps commercially available. If you give it
the proper care as outlined and recommended by this manual, it will provide you with reliable service
and long life.
441 & 491 SPLIT CASE PUMPS
Your Aurora Model 441 & 491 is a Split Case Pump, meaning the casing is split along the horizontal
centerline. This new compact design, with its shorter bearing span, has less deflection under
hydraulic load which results in less wear on the sleeves, bearings and packing. It is ideally suited for
applications such as water systems, boosters, liquid transfer, irrigation and Fire Protection Systems.
These pumps are available with a wide variety of options including mechanical seals, impeller wear
rings, oil-lubricated and water-cooled bearings. Some options may not be available on Model 491
Fire Pumps.

INTRODUCTION AND INSTALLATION
PAGE 3
INTRODUCTION
This manual contains information which is the result of carefully conducted engineering and research efforts. It
is designed to supply adequate instructions for the safe and efficient installation, operation maintenance of your
pump. Failure or neglect to properly install, operate or maintain your pump may result in personal injury,
property damage or unnecessary damage to the pump.
Variations exist in both the equipment used with these pumps and the particular installation of the pump and
driver. Therefore, specific operating instructions are not within the scope of this manual. The manual contains
general rules for installation, operation and maintenance of the pump.
Observe all caution or danger tags attached to the pump or included in this manual.
INSTALLATION
1.
GENERAL
CAUTION:
CAREFULLY READ ALL SECTIONS OF THIS MANUALAND ALL OTHER
INSTRUCTION MANUALS PROVIDED BY MANUFACTURERS OF OTHER
EQUIPMENT SUPPLIED WITH THIS PUMP.
Upon receipt of the shipment, unpack and inspect the pump and driver assemblies and individual parts to
ensure that none are missing or damaged. Carefully inspect al boxes and packing material for loose parts
before discarding them. Report immediately to the transportation company involved, and to the factory, any
missing parts or damage incurred during shipment, and file your “damaged and/or lost-in-shipment” claim with
the carrier.
Horizontal pump and driver assemblies mounted on a common base are accurately aligned at the factory.
However, alignment may be disturbed in transit or during installation. It must be checked after the unit is
leveled on its foundation, after the grouting has set and the foundation bolts are tightened, and after the piping
is completed.
When the pump and driver are mounted on separate base structures, the pump should be leveled and aligned
first, then the driver leveled and aligned with the pump. With separate bases, a flexible shaft between the pump
and driver must be used.
2.
NET POSITIVE SUCTION HEAD (NPSH)
NPSH can be defined as the head (energy) that causes liquid to flow through the suction pipe and enter the eye
of the impeller.
NPSH is expressed in two values: (1) NPSH required (NPSHR) and (2) NPSH available (NPSHA). It is essential
that NPSHA be always greater than NPSHR to prevent cavitation, vibration, wear and unstable operation.
NPSHR is a function of the pump design and therefore varies with the model, size, capacity and speed of the
pump. The value for your pump can be obtained from your pump performance curve or from the factory.
A. When the source of the liquid is above the pump:
NPSHA =
barometric pressure (feet) + static suction head (feet) – friction losses in suction piping
(feet) – vapor pressure of liquid (feet)
B. When the source of the liquid is below the pump:
NPSHA =
barometric pressure (feet) - static suction lift (feet) – friction losses in suction piping (feet)
– vapor pressure of liquid (feet)
PAGE 4
3.
INSTALLATION (continued)
MINIMUM SUBMERGENCE OF SICTION PIPE AND PIT DESIGN
For installations where the pump draws fluid from a sump, the hydraulic characteristics of the pump, the suction
inlet submergence and NPSH must be considered. Generally, it is required that an evenly distributed flow of
non-aerated water be supplied to the suction bell. Improper pit design or insufficient suction pipe submergence
can result in intake vortexing which reduces the pump’s performance and can result in severe damage to the
pump.
We recommend that you secure the advice of a qualified Consulting Engineer for the analysis of the suction pit.
Significant engineering data on design is provided in the Hydraulic Institute Standards.
4.
LOCATION AND HANDLING
The pump should be located as near the fluid as possible so a short direct suction pipe can be used to keep
suction losses at a minimum. If possible, locate the pump so the fluid will flow to the suction opening by gravity.
The discharge piping should be direct and with as few elbows and fittings as possible. The total net positive
suction head available (NPSHA), which includes suction lift and pipe friction losses, must be equal to or greater
than the net positive suction head required (NPSHR) by the pump.
The pump and driver should be located in an area that will permit periodic inspection and maintenance. Head
room and access should be provided and all units should be installed in a dry location with adequate drainage.
WARNING: DO NOT LIFT THE COMPLETE UNIT BY THE DRIVER OR PUMP SHAFTS OR EYE BOLTS.
To lift a horizontal mounted unit, a chain or suitable lifting device should be attached to each corner of the unit
base. The driver by itself may be lifted using the proper eyebolts provided by the manufacturer, but these
should not be used to lift the entire assembled unit.
5.
FOUNDATION
The foundation should have a level surface and have sufficient mass to prevent vibration and form a permanent
rigid support for the unit. The most satisfactory foundations are concrete with anchor bolts of adequate size
embedded in the foundation in pipe sleeves with an inside diameter 2½ times larger than the bolt diameter.
This will allow final accurate positioning of the unit.
6.
LEVELING OF THE UNIT
Lower the unit onto the foundation, positioning it so the anchor bolts are aligned with the center of the mounting
holes in the base. On all units, always disconnect the coupling halves and never reconnect them until all the
alignment operations are complete.
The base should be supported on metal shims or metal wedges placed directly under the part of the base
carrying the greatest weight, and spaced close enough to give uniform support and stability (see Figure 1).
Adjust the metal shims or wedges until the shafts of the pump and driver are level. Alignment adjustments can
be accomplished by adjusting the supports under the base. When proper alignment is obtained, tighten the
foundation bolts snugly, but not too firmly, and recheck the alignment before grouting.
Figure 1
BASEPLATE INSTALLATION
INSTALLATION (continued)
7.
PAGE 5
GROUTING
When the alignment is correct, the unit should be grouted using high grade non-shrinking grout. The entire
base should be filled with grout. Be sure to fill all gaps and voids. Allow the grout to fully cure before firmly
tightening the foundation bolts. Then recheck the alignment before connecting the piping.
8.
PIPING
CAUTION:
ALL PIPING CONNECTIONS MUST BE MADE WITH THE PIPING IN A FREE
SUPPORTED STATE, AND WITHOUT THE NEED TO APPLY VERTICAL OR
SIDE PRESSURE TO OBTAIN ALIGNMENT OF THE PIPING WITH THE
PUMP FLANGE.
CAUTION:
AFTER ALL THE PIPING IS CONNECTED, THE PUMP AND DRIVER
ALIGNMENT MUST BE RECHECKED.
All piping should be independently supported near the pump so that pipe strain will not be transmitted to the
pump casing. The suction and discharge piping should be one or two sizes larger than the pump flange sizes,
especially where the piping is of considerable length. Any flexible joints installed in the piping must be equipped
with tension rods to absorb piping axial thrust. Care must be exercised in arranging elbows so as not to
generate vortexing in the pump inlet.
The suction pipe must be air tight and sloped upward to the pump flange to avoid air pockets which will impair
satisfactory pump operation. The discharge pipe should be as direct as possible with a minimum of valves to
reduce pipe friction losses.
A check valve and closing valve should be installed in the pump discharge line and a closing valve in the
suction line. The check valve, between the pump and the closing valve, protects the pump from water hammer
and prevents reverse rotation in the event of power failure. The closing valves are used in priming, starting and
when the pump is shut down. The pump must never be throttled by the use of a valve in the suction line.
9.
AUXILIARY PIPING CONNECTIONS AND GAUGES
In addition to the primary piping connections, your pump may require mechanical seal and seal water filter
connections, connections to the lantern ring (see the “Packing Box” and “Mechanical Seal” sections of this
manual), stuffing box drain, discharge and suction flange gauges, casing relief valve drain or baseplate drain
connections. All these lines and gauges should now be installed.
10.
CONSTANT LEVEL OILERS
If your pump has oil-lubricated bearings, it will be equipped with constant level oilers which will be shipped loose
to prevent damage in shipment. The oilers must be installed in the tapped holes in the side of the beating
housings. To provide proper lubrication, the pipe connection the oiler to the bearing housing must be level (see
Figure 2).
FIGURE 2
When the oiler is level, fill the bottle and screw it onto the lower reservoir of the oiler. Allow the oil to flow into
the bearing reservoir. Several fillings of the bottle may be required before the oil level for which the oiler is set is
reached and the oil stops flowing. After filling the oil reservoir, check the oil level to make sure it is as specified
in the following table (see Page 6).

For Fire Pumps, the Model designation changes from “441” to “491.”
Adjust the oil level, if necessary, by loosening the setscrews on the side of the dust cap, raising the bottle and
tightening the screws. Refer to the oiler manufacturer’s instructions for more specific details.
11.
FINAL COUPLING ALIGNMENT
The alignment of the coupling must be carefully checked during installation and as the last step before starting
the pump. If realignment is required, the piping should be disconnected first. After aligning, reconnect the
piping in accordance with the previous instructions and again recheck the alignment.
A flexible coupling must not be used to compensate for misalignment resulting from poor installation or
temperature changes.
Aurora Pumps are supplied with several different types of commercial couplings. The following instructions
apply to units supplied with Woods couplings. If your unit has a different brand coupling, the manufacturer’s
instructions should be obtained before proceeding.
NOTE: FOR MAXIMUM LIFE, KEEP MISALIGNMENT VALUES AS NEAR TO ZERO AS POSSIBLE.

The coupling Type is printed on the sleeve.
* Type H sleeves SHOULD NOT be used as direct replacements for EPDM or Hytrel sleeves.
A.
Use a blunt screwdriver to slip the wire ring out of the groove and remove the two-piece sleeve.
Check the “G” dimension. If it is not as shown in the preceding table, loosen one flange of the
coupling and reposition it to achieve the specified “G” dimension.
NOTE: On a sleeve bearing electric motor, the armature should be at its electrical center when the “G”
dimension is measured.
B.
Check parallel misalignment by placing a straightedge across the two coupling flanges and
measuring the maximum offset at various points around the periphery of the coupling. DO NOT
ROTATE THE COUPLING. If the maximum offset exceeds the figure shown under “Parallel” in the
preceding table, realign the coupling.

FINAL COUPLING ALIGNMENT (continued)
C
Check the angular alignment with a micrometer or caliper. Measure from the outside of one flange to
the outside of the other at intervals around the periphery of the coupling. Determine the maximum
and minimum dimensions. DO NOT ROTATE THE COUPLING. The difference between the
maximum and minimum dimensions should not exceed the figure shown under “Angular” in the
preceding table. If a correction is required, you must always recheck the parallel alignment.
D. If the coupling employs a two-piece sleeve with a wire ring, force the ring into its groove in the center
of the sleeve. It may be necessary to pry the ring into position with a blunt screwdriver.
12.
WARNING:
CHECK SAFETY CODES, AND ALWAYS INSTALL PROTECTIVE GUARD OR
SHIELD AS REQUIRED BY VARIOUS FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL LAWS AND
REGULATIONS CONCERNING OSHA.
WARNING:
COUPLING SLEEVES MAY BE THROWN FROM THE ASSEMBLY WHEN
SUBJECTED TO A SEVERE SHOCK LOAD.
FLEXIBLE SHAFTING ALIGNMENT
For installation and alignment of intermediate flexible shafting, refer to the manufacturer’s instructions.
13.

Because variations exist in both the equipment used with these pumps and in the particular installation of the
pump and driver, specific operating instructions are not within the scope of this manual. However, there are
general rules and practices that apply to all pump installations and operation.
CAUTION: BEFORE STARTING OR OPERATING THE PUMP, READ THIS ENTIRE MANUAL,
ESPECIALLY THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS:
A.
BEFORE STARTING THE PUMP, INSTALL CLOSED GUARDS AROUND THE COUPLING.
B.
BEFORE STARTING THE PUMP, ROTATE THE UNIT OR ASSEMBLY BY HAND TO ASSURE ALL
MOVING PARTS ARE FREE.
C.
OBSERVE ALL CAUTION AND DANGER TAGS ATTACHED TO THE EQUIPMENT.
D.
NEVER RUN THE PUMP DRY AS THE CLOSE RUNNING FITS WITHIN THE PUMP ARE WATER
LUBRICATED. RUNNING DRY MAY RESULT IN PUMP SEIZURE.
E.
BEFORE STARTING THE PUMP, FILL THE CASING AND SUCTION LINE WITH LIQUID. THE
PUMP MAY BE PRIMED USING AN EJECTOR OR VACUUM PUMP.
F.
BEFORE STARTING A PACKED BOX PUMP, ADJUST THE PACKING GLAND SO THERE IS
SUFFICIENT LEAKAGE TO LUBRICATE THE PACKING AND ASSURE A COOL PACKING BOX.
(SEE MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS).
G.
IF EXCESSIVE VIBRATION OR NOISE OCCURS DURING OPERATION, SHUT THE PUMP DOWN
AND CONSULT AN AURORA PUMP REPRESENTATIVE.
1.
OPERATING AT REDUCED CAPACITY
Although these pumps are applicable over a wide range of operating conditions, care should be exercised when
doing so, especially when the actual conditions differ from the sold-for conditions. You should always contact
your nearest Aurora Pump sales office before operating the pumps for any condition other than that for which it
was sold.
2.
PRIMING
Since the pump medium is used to lubricate various internal parts, running a centrifugal pump dry can result in
extensive damage and possible seizing. It is therefore imperative that the pump be primed prior to initial startup and that prime be maintained through subsequent start-stop cycles.
The priming method is different for positive and negative suction head systems, and the following procedures
should be followed.
A. Positive Suction Head –
1. Open the vent on the highest point on the pump casing.
2. Open all suction valves.
3. Allow the pumped liquid to flow from the vent hole until all air bubbles are vented, then close the
vent.
4. The pump is now primed.
B. Negative Suction Head –

5.
Install an ejector or vacuum pump on the vent at the highest point on the pump casing.
Close the discharge valve.
Open the suction valve.
Start ejector or vacuum pump.
Allow the liquid to flow until a continuous flow is exhausted from the ejector, then close the valve to
the vent.
6. The pump is now primed.
PAGE 10
OPERATION (continued)
3.
STARTING THE PUMP
A.
After the pump is primed, and with the discharge valve closed and the suction valve open, start the driver
according to the driver manufacturer’s instructions.
Open the discharge valve slowly to prevent water hammer.
After the pump has been started, check bearing temperatures, packing box lubrication and operation and
pump noise level for a period of several hours.
B.
C.
CAUTION: BEGIN THESE CHECKS IMMEDIATELY UPON STARTING THE PUMP AND MONITOR
THEM CONTINUOUSLY FOR THE FIRST SEVERAL HOURS OF OPERATION.
4.
BEARING OPERATING TEMPERATURE
These pumps are designed to operate over a wide ambient temperature range. The bearing temperature, when
measured at the outside surface of the bearing housing, should not exceed 190oF. Temperatures in excess of
190oF may indicate lack of lubricant, bearing overload or insipient bearing failure. If the temperature exceeds
this limit, the pump should be stopped and the cause investigated and corrected.
5.
TROUBLESHOOTING OPERATING PROBLEMS
If you have followed the installation and start-up procedures outlined in this manual, your pump should provide
reliable service and long life. However, if operating problems do occur, significant time and expense can be
saved if you use the following checklist to eliminate the most common causes of those problems.

3. BEARING LUBRICATION
A. Grease Lubricated Bearings
Under normal operating conditions, the bearings must be lubricated after every 2000 hours of running
time, but at least once a year regardless of total operating hours.
CAUTION:
ANY APPLICATION WITH ABNORMAL HEAT, MOISTURE, DUST, ETC. MAY
REQUIRE A CHANGE IN THIS SCHEDULE AND YOU SHOULD REFER TO A
LUBRICATION ENGIEER OR THE FACTORY FOR SPECIFIC INSTRUCTIONS.
CAUTION:
THE GREASES RECOMMENDED IN THIS MANUAL WILL PROVIDE SATISFACTORY
LUBRICATION OVER A WIDE TEMPERATURE RANGE. THERE IS, HOWEVER, A
PRACTICAL LIMIT, AND OPERATION OF THE PUMP SHOULD BE DISCONTINUED
AND THE FACTORY CONSULTED IF THE TEMPERATURE, WHEN MEASURED ON
THE OUTSIDE OF THE BEARING HOUSING, EXCEEDS 190oF.
RECOMMENDED GREASE: Chevron SRI grease N.L.G.I. No. 2 multi-purpose with a mineral oil
viscosity of 517 SUS at 100oF or equivalent.
Proceed as follows for bearing lubrication:
WARNING:
KEEP HANDS, FINGERS, CLOTHING AND ANY TOOLS AWAY FROM THE
COUPLING. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD RESULT IN SERIOUS PERSONAL
INJURY.

Stop the pump and remove the pipe plug at the bottom of the bearing housing.
Connect a grease gun to the lubrication fitting.
Inject grease until it relieves at the bearing housing cover and drain hole.
Remove the grease gun.
Start the pump. NOTE: Immediately after lubrication, bearing temperatures may rise above the
normal level. Continue running the unit until bearing temperatures stabilize at the normal level.
6. Stop the unit, wipe off the relieved grease and replace the drain plug.
7. Start the unit and resume normal operation.
B. Oil Lubricated Bearings
Fill the constant level oiler and add additional oil as required. Replace the old oil with new every 2000
hours, but at least once a year. Drain the oil by removing the plug at the bottom of the bearing
housings (C158 and D158).
MAINTENANCE (continued)
PAGE 13
3. BEARING LUBRICATION (continued)
Check the oiler setting periodically to be sure it is correct. Refer to the following table for the correct setting.
RECOMMENDED OILS: The oil used should be non-detergent type containing rust and oxidation inhibitors,
supplied by a reputable manufacturer.
Depending on bearing/pump operating temperature, the grade and viscosity should be as follows:
Below 120oF – ISO Vg Grade 40-70 (SAE 20)
120F to 250oF – ISO Vg Grade 70-100 (SAE 20)
Above 250oF – Consult the factory for a recommendation.
4. PACKING BOX
CAUTION: DO NOT TIGHTEN THE GLAND TO STOP ALL LEAKAGE. LEAKAGE IS NECESSARY TO
ENSURE THE COOLING, FLUSHING AND LUBRICATION OF THE PACKING AND TO
PREVENT SHAFT SLEEVE DAMAGE.
The packing boxes on Aurora Pumps are packed at he factory. All packing is subject to wear and should be
given regular inspections and, if necessary, periodic adjustments. Generally, packed box pumps require
inspection of the packing and adjustments to the glands after each 150 hours of operation.
Adjustment is made by lightly tightening the gland nuts, then loosening them so that they can be adjusted with
finger pressure to allow a small flow of liquid to lubricate the packing. If the flow of liquid has increased and
cannot be reduced by a slight tightening of the gland, add one ring of packing to the packing box and readjust
the gland. If this fails to reduce the flow, replace the packing and/or shaft sleeve.
The packing boxes may be fitted with lantern rings. When a lantern ring is furnished, the sealing chamber
should be connected to a source of clear fresh water.
5. PACKING REPLACEMENT
Use a good grade of soft, square long fiber packing, thoroughly graphited. The replacement procedure should
be as follows:
A. Stop the pump.
B. Unbolt and remove the glands away from the packing.
C. Use a packing hook to remove the worn rings of packing and lantern rings. Note the location of the
lantern rings relative to the amount of packing on each side of the lantern rings. (See sectional
drawings on pages 23 & 24.)
D. Clean the packing boxes and shaft sleeves.
E. Inspect the shaft sleeves for wear or rough finish and replace if necessary.
F. Install new packing and lantern rings.
CAUTION:
STAGGER THE PACKING END JOINTS 180 AND FIRMLY SEAT THE PACKING.
THE FOLLOWING TABLE GIVES THE PERTINENT PACKING BOX, LANTERN RING
AND PACKING DIMENSIONS (see page 14).
G. Reinstall the glands and tighten the gland nuts.
H. Loosen the gland nuts so they can be adjusted with finger pressure to obtain correct leakage for
lubrication after start-up.

7. PUMP ASSEMBLY
CAUTION:
READ THIS ENTIRE PROCEDURE BEFORE CONTINUING.
Following are step-by-step instructions for assembly of the pump and are essentially the reverse order of the
instructions for disassembly.
A. Thoroughly clean all parts to remove oil, grease and foreign material. Inspect for wear or damage and
replace if required. Remove all parts to a clean and dust-free location for assembly. Gaskets, grease
seals and bearings should not be reused and should always be replaced with new parts.
B. If the impeller wear rings (17) require replacement, they are a light press fit and will be secured by one
of the following methods. You should proceed as follows:
Rings Secured With Loctite: Apply a light film of Loctite No. 290 to the impeller part of the
impeller/wear ring fit and install the rings.
Rings Secured With Set Screws: Press the rings in place and drill and tap them using the same size
and number of setscrews as originally provided. The new holes should be 15o to 20o from the old
holes. Install and tighten the set screws.
CAUTION: BE CAREFUL NOT TO DRILL THROUGH THE IMPELLER AND BE SURE TO PRESS
THE WEAR RING COMPLETELY IN PLACE. THEY SHOULD BE FIRMLY BUTTED
AGAINST THE CORRESPONDING IMPELLER SHOULDER.
C. Install the impeller key (102) in the shaft (4) and slide the impeller (1) over the key, centering it between
the shaft shoulders as shown in Figure 5.
